"If we're really engaged in mindfulness while walking we will consider the act of each step we take as an infinite wonder, and a joy will open our hearts like a miraculous and mysterious reality."

Are you looking to calm your mind, rejuvenate your body and harmonize your soul?
We will immerse ourselves in the serene atmosphere of a nature walk on beautiful Vancouver Island, which can be an enlightening experience. When we deeply settle into our bodies and breath, all busy thoughts to the outside world will subside and you will be able to tune into your senses, to master your intentions with a clearer, more direct quality of perception.
Walking Meditations help us to relax into our sense perceptions, not trying to get our experiences to come out a particular way, it is possible to have a glimpse of things as they truly are. Here we will connect to a deeper understanding of the beauty and magic in the natural world while we master our intentions to bring harmony and balance to our souls.
At the beginning of our walking meditations, there will be a brief discussion on the tools (healing cards, Runes, Crystals etc ) that may help you to create your intentions and the Law of Attraction and how tobe OPEN to RECEIVE your intentions.
As humans we feel a great need to attach meanings to symbols and have always used them to speak to us as a way of showing us where our attentions lay and as an aide in self reflection.
You will be given the opportunity, if you wish, to draw three items (for the mind, body and soul) on your walk.
The purpose of this is to meditate on the positive healing attributes of the items and feel
where the symbol/ or meaning fits in your life at the moment. Are these attributes and meanings
something we need to believe in for ourselves? Is there someone in our lives
that is really important right now. How does this fit
in our here and now.
We will then walk 20 minutes in quiet meditation reflecting on the positive characteristics of the healing card.
Second draw could be from one of the Major Arcana. The Major Arcana
describes a journey from beginning to end. From what is drawn, where is this card
the journey - beginning, middle of or nearing an end. Is it a physical journey, an emotional one, a career or lifestyle journey? How does the first card work with the second?
We will continue to walk 20 minutes in quiet meditation joining the characteristics of the first card with
the journey of the second card.
Last draw is a crystal to keep. These come as a gift from the Mother
herself. Is she sending you wisdom, strength or healing? Keep this in the palm of your
hand as you walk the last 20 minutes reflecting on your messages
We will close with a thank you to Mother Earth for what she provides for us, what she teaches us and how she heals us!
Tuesday and Wednesday 12 noon - 1 pm
Your investment into learning walking meditations - $15 per person. Small groups (6 guests) includes meditation download & healing crystal
Rain or shine. Covid-19 safety protocols & social distancing in place.
